Limerick: shrinks, part 2

Once attending professional course
Shrinks attempted to fix mind flaws
They gorged on cocaine
But primitive brain
Has failed to achieve sacred pause

Short Jobs poem by Sean Rackley| Details | |

Austin Commute

It wasn't so bad this morning
But I arrived an hour early
If I'd left later—
     even a few minutes?
Only the clock will tell
After all
     It's only my first time

Short Jobs poem by Sara Kendrick| Details | |

Subtly

There once was a trucking company
Held together with duck tape funny
Repairs a lick and promise
Polished with cloth and Comet
Mechanics work done very subtly

Careful What You Wish For

There once was an ambitious man named Eddie,
who wanted a job in the traveling industry.
The genie granted his wish,
but Ed never expected this;
an employer's note saying, "Welcome to the DMV!"

The New Job

The New Job
Dr. James E. Martin
©December, 2012


He started his job at six,
He was ready to enter the mix.
He lost it as seven,
Not his view of heaven,
So now it is back to the sticks.

large space.
i should go home.
get fired.
i only live once.
headaches.
across the room.
his voice.
breathing down my back.
it stinks. 
why can't i have big boobs?
my boss
you suck!

I'm fired!


Short Jobs poem by Micah Freeman| Details | |

Vacations

Waterfalls and beach balls 
breakfast in bed with bear claws 
Nothin I like better than a vacation 

Paper work and people wastin my time 
Ain't nothin I hate more than waitin in line 
For that next vacation

Short Jobs poem by Preston Dusseault| Details | |

Hands

My hands do indeed,
They show no secrets,
Scars and cuts,
Tough skin.

They show no secrets,
These hands of mine,
Tough skin,
Along the palm.

These hands of mine,
Scars and cuts,
Along the palm,
My hands do indeed.

Short Jobs poem by Tara Andre| Details | |

Solving Insomnia

Dogs barking loudly at night,
Even when you tell them to stop?
After midnight or early hours,
Despite you having called the cops?

Don't you worry, I've been there too,
Open-eyed and out of my mind.
Good thing I acted; now I can sleep;
So maybe the next pooch will be more kind.

Short Jobs poem by Dan Keir| Details | |

Comfort

There’s comfort in conformity,
The dry herd steps forward to give 
Filed sighs, an enormity
Of purpose, peppered like a sieve
With empty space, paraded fast
Through love and loss, to lie and live,
Splaying bones to yawn death at last,
Our time to pass, we won’t forgive.


Short Jobs poem by Kendra Kautz| Details | |

Blameless

Everything that happens
Is not my fault
I cant control all things    
Sometimes things 
Just have to change     
Sometimes its 
Noones fault
And there's no
Assigning blame
Sometimes people
Grow appart 
But life will
Carry on                  
Just because im afraid
Is no reason to close my heart

Short Jobs poem by Victoria Riis| Details | |

Work, Writing and Why

Walking in and out of my day
I wonder why does it has to be this way.

What have I done all these years?
Who have I become?

Waiting for something or someone?
Working to provide a meal or two?

There is a time to write and to make
up for all that time, then all the work
comes down to a line, and then a word.


Short Jobs poem by Wm Paul| Details | |

8-12-13 A CHANGE OF SCENE

He quit the sea as a Pirate,
To become a Hard Rock Miner,
No more could he take
The Wind and the Water,
Thought he the Dirt and Dust
Could make his Life the better.

Hard Work it was
And the blisters grew,
The sweat and heat was
Most oppressive.

And the Gold trickled in,
And the Gold was worth it.

Short Jobs poem by Agnes Bugeja| Details | |

Chicken Suit

He stands on the curb
in a chicken suit. 
Jumping,dancing and waving at you.

Yep, it's a job
Money to make
Is it demeaning?
You may laugh and say-

I would never do that
But do what you must
Just to live life
It is a must!
Wave as you drive by
It could be you-
dancing and waving
In that "Chicken Suit"

Short Jobs poem by Robert Pettit| Details | |

Censorship

Sometimes, if an act is to be funny, a comedian may resort to using profanity. What he says may be considered outrageous, but he makes laughter look like it's contagious. On television, you would never hear a profane quip. The sound may be beeped out due to censorship. inspired by another member's poem

Short Jobs poem by njeri hunjeri| Details | |

Working From Home

Ask chrome 
Of how I roam
Of how I mold
Trying to build gold

Working from home, my dream job!

Ask me
Of how I dream
Of how I avoid steam
Of how I create schemes and streams
Trying to make whole cream

Working from home, my dream job

This is no joke
It's hope
If only poetry would put food on my table
It would be an avenue to gamble.

Short Jobs poem by ghairo daniels| Details | |

RETRENCHED WOMEN

2. RETRENCHED WOMEN




The brain aches, numbs the soul
Pictures float away of women
Crying, laughing, ironing sheets
Thinking about jobs and sex
Of finding jobs and cooking cheap spaghetti


Of playing with skinny children, malnourished
Recovering from agonies, worry, turmoil
Confusion and schizophrenia
From absorbing life and giving
Life.
